I cannot recommend this more highly. If you have an account with Netflix you can watch it through their streaming service on your computer or TV. Do it! You won't be disappointed.
"Addressing a huge crowd at the shrine of Fatima at the climax of his four day visit to Portugal, the 83-year-old Pope said that same sex marriage and abortion were among the 'most insidious and dangerous challenges that today confront the common good.' He expressed his 'profound appreciation' for anti-abortion campaigners, who he praised for defending the right to life and the 'recovery of people wounded by the drama of abortion'."
I am looking for a tried and true Tomato Jam recipe. I have garnered a few from the Internet, notably one from Martha Stewart (she has a recipe for everything I think) and one from the New York Times writer Mark Bittman, which is seen at left. Now Martha's seems more of a "ketchupy" version while Bittman's seems more like a spicy version. I would like to make some jam this summer as I am working my Topsy-Turvy Tomato Planters again this year. I would like to try a recipe from someone that has made it before and has a great recipe. If I don't get any recipes from this plea I will make some based on the two recipes and post the results for you. I am having "the girls" over for Memorial Day and will make some to serve with the ribs, hot dogs and burgers being served. They can be my guinea pigs.
I'll let you know the results. In the meantime your recipes will be appreciated. You can post the recipe by pasting (or typing) it into the comments for this post. Simply click on the word "comments" at the bottom of the post.
Thanks for your help!

Soldiers in Iraq show support for gays in the military with a silly sexy routine set to Ke$ha. From the clip description: "Created by Codey Wilson and his elite step team of volunteers. Don't give us a hard time for this, please? We're just a few good men trying to enjoy ourselves and get this deployment over with. No one is gay... that we know of. Not that there is anything wrong with that!"
Andy Towle opines: "Popped collars, go-go dancing atop heavy equipment, nudity, lip-dubbing in the showers. These are all things to be extremely concerned about if gays are allowed to serve openly in the military! Though it appears the straight guys have beat them to it."
Aren't they scamps?
